I bet properly bilingual students do this a lot. Four page report on mitochondria due tomorrow? You bet someone's already done one in German, Arabic, Chinese, etc. Takes was less time to translate than to do the report properly, and it's literally untraceable.
I'm not a particularly good translator, so the sentences are often a bit clunky. Not enough that it's obvious I think
Can translation be plagiarism?
Several times for a class I've written reports (in english) on things which were primarily documented in french. Sometimes I find myself essentially just translating a few paragraphs from FR to EN, moving a sentence or two around, and sending it.
I really do not understand why more people don't speak up in class.
My worst quality is that it take an enormous amount of effort for me to read and return a library book without physically damaging it. I think I've broken the spine, folded dozens of pages, and gotten coffee on every single book I've ever read in my life.
fucking dumb family shit Show more
<- gfather lives with partner on west coast
<- his health deteriorates significantly
<- partner realizes he's using her as a full-time nurse
<- partner moves to another state
<- gfather is moved, with great effort, to the other side of the country to live with my aunt
<- aunt loses her mind and becomes hostile and resentful of other family members
<- other family members have no access to their father now
<- to take GFather away from aunt would be highly insulting to her
the Soul has never been a compelling idea to me, but now I have a proper response. deep down, behind the person, behind whirring processers in the brain, is Void. now that's something the rocks and trees don't have!!
no matter how strongly I am Elliot (boy I'm feeling weird just seeing my name written out) in appearance and behavior and presentation at the end of the day the human brain is a supercomputer and there is far more going on above and below the surface than Whatever Person I Am Socially
